President Barack Obama
announced Fulbright University Vietnam
on May 24, 2016.

We’re creating a university community
that reflects the diversity of
Vietnamese society.

FUV is reimagining interdisciplinary
liberal education for the 21st century.

We will recruit exceptional students
from across Vietnam to help us create
a unique university experience.

We’re reimagining the university.

The last decades have seen any number of new universities start around the world.  Most fall into two categories: replications of existing models in new locations, and for-profit institutions that hope to leverage efficiencies while still delivering an acceptable educational product.

We think there’s another way.  We’re building Fulbright University Vietnam, an entirely new, non-profit university in Ho Chi Minh City.  For us, the American tradition of liberal education is an inspiration, but it’s a point of departure, not the destination.

We’re starting from scratch, with the goal of creating an institution that can transform the lives of young people, address the pressing needs of Vietnamese society, and ultimately point the way toward a new approach to high quality education in developing countries.

We’re laser-focused on creating a transformative educational experience that is accessible to gifted students from around Vietnam, irrespective of their socioeconomic circumstances.

We recognize the magnitude of the opportunity and the challenge. While it would be easier to create “yet another university”, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to imagine a new approach to higher education from the ground up.
